OUR WOOD FLOOR SANDING AND REFINISHING PROCESS

STEP 1

We start by giving the area to be sanded a thorough clean and punching nails deeper into the boards where required.

STEP 2

We sand the floor with a weighted rotary sander, which removes less timber than a belt sander, so your floor will last.

STEP 3

We continue sanding, using progressively finer grades of sandpaper to remove scratches and discolouring, and give your floor a clean finish.

STEP 4

Next,sand the edges with a hand held rotary sander, with a final sand using orbital sander to leave a smooth, scratch free finish.

STEP 5

We will then apply a barrier seal to prepare it for coating. If required, we can follow this up with a thin coat of a desired toner.

STEP 6

The last step is applying two coats of a high density, two-pack water-based polyurethane for a durable finish.

Experience Counts

In 2018, Electrodry refinished over 2,000 wood floors. We are the only company in Australia that provides non-sanding wood floor refinishing services (see our Timber Refresh and Timber Restore services). This means we can provide you with a range of options to refinish your floor that suit your circumstances and budget.

A weighted rotary sander takes off less wood in the sanding process and enabling us to refinish delicately engineered timber floors without the risk of causing damage. When sanding your floor, we always use at least 3 grades of sanding discs (coarse, medium and fine) to give the cleanest possible finish without sanding scratches or sanding swirls.

We Don’t Cut Corners

Electrodry offers an all-inclusive floor sanding and refinishing service. We do whatever required to get the best finish.

Our Costs

When we provide a quote you can be sure that there are no hidden costs. Our quotations are all inclusive, so there will be no hidden surprises. There is a $30 fee to inspect your floor and provide a quotation, however, this is refundable when you go ahead with the floor sanding service.

The cost varies between cities and states and will vary depending on the state of the floor and work required. If you would like a table of charges please call Electrodry on 13 27 13 or email [email protected] for more information.

 

FAQ ABOUT FLOOR SANDING

There’s not too much to take care of. You will need to remove all furniture and personal items from the rooms that we will be sanding. If you would like to leave very heavy items in place such as your fridge, we can work around these.

Small jobs, such a single room, can be completed in a day. Medium size jobs (up to 75 square metres) will usually be completed in two days but may require three. Time frames for larger jobs will depend on the size of the job and the work required. Your technician will be able to give you a time frame when they inspect the job. Staining and customer colour options such as whitewashing will increase the job time by 24 to 48 hours, depending on the size of the job.

Your floor will be ready to walk on the following day, although we recommend just walking in socks for the 36-48 hours. Furniture can be replaced the following day, providing new furniture pads are placed under your furniture to prevent scratching. Heavy items with wheels such as furniture trolleys and fridges must be kept off the floor for 1 week. The same applies to floor coverings such as rugs.

Electrodry uses skilled 2 man crews (no junior apprentices) and rapid curing two-pack floor coatings that allow us to apply multiple coats of polyurethane to your floor in a day. This is in contrast to other floor sanders who often use a technician and a junior apprentice and apply two or three solvent-based coatings over two or three days.

If the area to be sanded does not include vital rooms such as bedrooms and kitchens, then it may be possible for you to stay in the house. However it is important that the rooms being sanded are completely free of traffic, so you won’t be able to access them during the sanding process. If you are considering staying in the house, keep in mind that you may find the noise unpleasant. It is especially recommended that if you are pregnant or suffer from asthma that you find alternative accommodation while we are working on your floors.

Electrodry uses high-quality two-pack water-based floor coatings with rapid curing times and minimal odours. In most cases you will struggle to detect an odour four hours after the completion of the job, meaning there will be no odour when you start using your freshly sanded rooms.

Electrodry uses a dust capture system that collects the great majority of dust we produce. You may find a light film of dust on some surfaces in areas where we are sanding, but we will wipe down these surfaces as part of the job.

We can sand out most damage to your wooden floor. However, some pre-existing issues may remain or could affect the final finish of your floor. These include:

1) Deep cuts in your floorboards (from carpet trimming knives, for example). This is because sanding out deep damage would require sanding the boards to a dangerously thin level.

2) Water Damaged or weathered floorboards may require replacing or may affect the even-ness or tone of the final result.

3) Urine damaged floor will have dark stains that may remain.

Electrodry Adelaide provides floor sanding and polishing services for hardwood and engineered wood floors. Engineered floors have a 2 – 3mm timber veneer over MDF board, that can be safely sanded using our rotary sanding process.

These services are one-day options, and can give you a brilliant finish for a smaller cost than sanding. But for some floors, these services won’t be enough. We want to give you all the options to get your floor looking great again, and sanding is an important part of that!
